How to configure your desktop/laptop to use the Bluetooth headset
Posted on 25-May-2003 16:00 by M Freitas. | Tags Filed under: Articles.


This time we'll show you how to configure your desktop or laptop to use a Bluetooth Headset. The objective is to be able to use the headset as the input (mic) and output for sounds in your computer.

In this article we're using an Ericsson HBH20 and a TDK USB Bluetooth (version 1.3.2.7). We assume your devices are already paired. If not, do it first, then come back here!

Check out other Geekzone Bluetooth Guides.

Some screens on your computer may be different, but the idea is the same.

Open My Bluetooth Places and select Entire Bluetooth Neighborhood.
Right-click the icon corresponding to the paired headset and select Connect Headset.
Your headset will beep, indicating an incoming connection. Follow the procedure for your headset to accept the connection. On the Ericsson HBH-20 simply press the control button once. The icon corresponding to the headset will turn green in your computer, indicating connection active.
You can now use the headset as the primary speaker and mic for your computer. To check this you can start and test with Windows Sound Recorder, available on Start | Programs | Accessories | Entertainment | Sound Recorder. You'll also notice that the Sounds and Multimedia applet in the Control Panel will change to Bluetooth Audio.
To finish the connection go back to the Headset icon in My Bluetooth Places, right-click the icon and select Disconnect Headset.
The Sounds and Multimedia properties in the Control Panel will automatically change to the original settings. You can manually set this if you want.
